A second Education Day held in Geelong


After the success of our Melbourne Education Day, Independence Australia’s team were ready to do it all again on Wednesday 7th September.

Geelong Education Day was held at Mt Duneed Estate, which provided a gorgeous backdrop from the early hours of the morning as preparation begun.

Delegate registrations opened at 8:30am prompting the hustle and bustle of name bages, gift bags and reunions as many nurses ran into industry friends.

Officially welcoming in the morning, delegates heard from gold sponsor Kimberly – Clark Australia. First speaker Christine Redpath then presented delegates with ‘Challenges after treatment for prostate cancer.’

Following a delicious morning tea, delegates returned to their seats for speaker Megan Kelly’s insightful examination of ‘diagnosis, management and treatment of venous leg ulcers.’ A short time after Megan, delegates heard from Erica Pearce as she presented ‘trials and tribulations of continence related skin issues.’

A break for lunch was then welcomed by delegates who enjoyed the opportunity to chat with exhibitors before again taking their seats to hear Denise Burbridge present her topic ‘staying strong – nutrition considerations for ageing Australians.’

As the afternoon drew to a close and the sun began to set on Mt Duneed Estate, delegates enjoyed a final ‘Wound Assessment’ presentation from Jan Rice.

A fantastic day was had by all delegates, exhibitors and Independence Australia staff with many delegates sending emails post event  to request the opportunity to attend our next Education Day event.
